Phil is just killing it this entire show. I'm sure I listened to Dozin' back in the day but not really with the attention it deserves. I've been streaming shows at work all year focusing on the current date. It's been enlightening to say the least and has taken me out of my comfort zone as far as what era I like to listen to.
Phil is in his own world and to me everyone else is just playing along. Franklin's and Playin' really stand out but really the whole show. Love to hear him this high in the mix.
Thanks to all involved in taping/transferring and to those that maintain this site. What a wonderful piece of history for us to enjoy for years to come. I only attended a couple shows myself...towards the end, but having the chance to listen to them all from 60's right thru to 95 is a privilege I do not take for granted.
Subject: Tennesse Jed jam
I've been on a 90's Dead kick, and this is as good as it gets.
Subject: Let the good times roll
Both the first and second set are high octane.
Phil high in the mix 2nd set kinda like the old days.
If you were just eyeballing the 1st set nothing jumps out but it was very well played.
I do remember being totally pumped to hear Saturday Night as the 1st set closer.
Amazing what just a little creativity in the set list could ignite.
At times there is a intense almost frantic pace to this show.
Transition from Playin to UJB is beautiful.
Mind Left Body is good -as I am listening I keep thinking they are going to hook it into Hell in a Bucket or something like that. THANKFULLY THEY HEAD FOR DRUMZ!
Set 1 - Let the Good Times Roll starts us off in an almost-cinematic fashion, the final acappela vocal sending us over the cliff, right into H>S>F - love when the band sets up a set this way! Loser is indeed special, and its omission from Dosin' is positively unbelievable. Jed > Saturday Night is certainly an unusual way to end the set, but it sets us giddily up for what's to come...
Set 2 wastes no time, starting right into the suite with Playin'; its the Mind Left Body (Mud Love Buddy?) jam that makes it for me - wow....someone here on the archives likened that jam to a "phoenix rising from the ashes" - couldn't have put it better.
Drums > Space here is very special for me, maybe due to the sheer number of listens I had given disc 2 of Dosin' back in the old days - I really do think its my personal favorite of all the D>S sequences I've ever heard, and that's a lot! It almost sounds electronically pre-programmed, and you have to remind yourself this shit is LIVE - Mickey and Billy really do try for serious structure and almost-compositional technique. Instantly identifiable.
Post-space is good, not amazing, but keeps us on a steady course - Watchtower has Jerry ripping things to shreds as usual and Stella makes for a nice, late-set ballad.
All of the '90 Knick run is special, and there are all kinds of various forms you can enjoy these shows. As long as they're letting us listen to Mr. Charlie's magic here on the archive, go for this one.
Subject: WAY Better than Dozin'
This recording blows Dozin' at the Knick out of the water, leaving only the flotsam of now- useless jewel cases...
Subject: Intent....Passion...and CM Mastery
This band could play . When they took the stage this tour it was with intent . They were together at this point for almost 11 years . Far longer then any other GD roster . At a good show there would be a sense of one-upmanship between Garcia and Weir . A great show would have the Billy and Micky locked in and Phil dialed in . A show with the hard earned Gold Star has everyone listening to each other , and a wowza set list . We have a Gold Star show here folks . This and 9 -19 -90 were the best shows I had the privilege of seeing . Sonically , A Charlie Miller Masterpiece
This is one of the few GD shows I listen to most of the whole show . The first seven songs in set one are home runs , back to back to back.... Even Walking Blues . All are A list quality . ( TJed and OMSN aren't for me .) Set two left me in an wonderful state of contentment , spent and blissful . Highlights are the MLBJ ( psychedelic pop in all its glory ), my fav Wheel ( I love the intro ) and NFA ( unhooked from Throwing Up and jammed out properly ). Best show for dancing I have ever been to . The halls were filled with all types of heads , freeking freely . It was wild . A must have show .

great Franklins, by the way.
Subject: Official Release Left off the BEST SONG
Only problem is they left off from that CD THE single best song from the show: LOSER, which is why you should listen to this if for no other reason.
This and 7/22/84 Ventura are simply the 2 BEST versions of the song the Dead EVER did. Period. Give a listen and you'll see.
